Tahirul Qadri returning to Pakistan on August 8
01 August, 2017
LAHORE: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri will return to Pakistan on August 8. The announcement comes after Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification by the Supreme Court in the Panamagate case.
After the verdict, Qadri had said: “Pakistan wins today. It is the victory of people. The nation is indebted to the SC judges who gave this historic verdict. #PanamaVerdict” He then pointed out that the victims of the 2014 Model Town incident also awaited justice: “It is hoped now that the families of martyrs of Model Town will get justice as well. #PanamaVerdict” “We will now raise Go Shahbaz Go slogans. The justifications offered by the former PM in his defence make no sense and fly in the face of facts,” he had said. “What has come to the fore is just a tip of the iceberg, adding that the list of crimes committed by the ruling elite is very long and they need to be meted out exemplary punishment for that,” he said.
“The nomination of the Punjab CM, who is main accused in the Model Town incident as the Prime Minister of the country, will be a great joke with law, constitution and morality. The nation will not accept Shahbaz Sharif as the PM due to his role in Model Town tragedy. The destination of the killers of innocent people is jail.” The PAT Chairman demanded that the Model Town Commission report and documents contained in the Volume 10 of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report should be made public now. “Nawaz Sharif just did not loot the country but his actions against the national security are on record as well. Nawaz Sharif will not sit idle and will target the national institutions such as judiciary and national security institutions. Anxiety of the former ruler has increased manifold after expression of complete satisfaction by the people with the judgment of the apex court.”
